When people think of fall fashion, they usually think sweater weather, but how about vest weather? Last year, faux fur vests made a grand re-entrance on the runway and this year it’s no different. Fur vests appeared in many designers’ shows including Vera Wang, BCBGMAXAZRIA and Stella McCartney. What’s cool is that they were all completely different, ranging from black to white, stripes to plain and long to short. Of course, faux fur vests like the ones on the runway have transcended to street wear so you can rock them just like Kendall Jenner.
